    Perhaps the drone strikes keep even our Special Forces from going into certain regions and interrogating people on the so called kill list and obtaining certain information.

    Also the movie released in I believe 1997 “The Rock” with Nicholas cage has eerie similarities to past events such as an off the record prisoner with implicating secrets, ironically named Mason. And the death of an entire Navy Seal team, and Newly developed Termite Plasma bombs…to name a few.

  2. Great conversation. Almost got there. Then blowback was suggested. How unfortunate. The elephant in the room should have stomped on CYA and double-cross, so we could watch the smoke dissipate. But blowback was there to shield them from further scrutiny. At least I get to feel like I’m not as dense as some people, but I wanted to watch the coyote catch the roadrunner. Just once!

    Still, an excellent exposure of crooked judges and the controlled opposition. Thanks!

  3. Imants Virsnieks says:

    Awesome. A penumbra of similar sinister events points to the umbra, the name we dare not say. It is not blowback, it is exactly what you say, divide and conquer is working fine, silence from likely protesters is deafening.

  4. al-Awlaki. OBL. AlZawahiri. AliMohammad. KSM. The redaction of Abu Zubaydah..assets tortured, dead. A corrupt Judiciary. NSA/CIA/FBI Blackmail…. The Govt.’seeking to protect itself’ from disclosure of direct managed operations—>bypass 911 as a ‘lucky break’ by a long string of double agents just managed to fool the entire intelligence network systems, Pilot schools NORAD and known building science all on the same day; pissing the Government agencies off into killing/arresting/torturing/drugging them for ‘being duped’ RATHER THAN wet work mopping up after the greatest single deception ever….

    I am to take it Mr Farrell and, for that matter, Mr Lindh, never, in all their inquiry into the machinations of deep state, came up against the evidence of 911 being THE CENTRAL inside ‘operation’ dictating ALL behaviors of ALL agencies before during and after that event?

  5. Xicha, my sentiments exactly. And Sibel and Peter both did a great job of asking the right questions and making the right observations, but Mr. Farrell just wasn’t quite going where everything pointed. Blowback. Sigh.

    The Awlaki story is so intriguing. I don’t get the sense that Mr. Farrell has quite connected the dots together in a way that rings true, but then neither has anyone else really. I’m not buying him as central to 9/11, not so far. Something was going on between him and FBI/CIA, but as far as I can tell thus far, all we can really say is there’s a lot we don’t know.

  6. Hi John,

    It was Peter B (who is an excellent interviewer, but human), reinforcing the blow-back meme, after Mr. Farrell had gone from no-good-possible-answers to recognizing that our relationship with al qaeda/mujahideen types was more continuous in nature. One more round with Sibel would have been nice right there, correcting Mr. Farrell on his understanding that the US just left these armed terrorists alone after we were done with them – so they stewed in their juices and decided to double-cross us. This is obviously not the case. Sibel did really well to ask him to consider the US’s outright, official management of al qaeda, and I hope it will plant a seed in his mind.

    The nice thing is that we could hear him moving in that direction, during the interview, and, to me, it seemed genuine. But he must have been a little coy at the same time – hard to tell.

    We’re asking a lot as an audience. I hope Sibel and Peter B won’t mind the Monday morning quarter-backing. It’s important to try to notice these things, IMO, as long as it’s respectfully done.

  7. tonywicher says:

    There is no damned blowback! No “incompetence”. No “failure to connect the dots”. No ‘left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing”. “Al Qaeda” is a creation of Anglo-American imperialism for the purpose of STATE-SPONSORED TERRORISM. “Blowback” “incompetence”, “failure to connect the dots” etc. are the cover-up for what is completely intentional.

  8. jackdonovan says:



    Satellite! Obama was being tracked by a satellite! So was Feinstein, the judges and lawyers and etc.

    Electronic surveillance of every single virtual identity on the Internet is a given; what Russ Tice was talking about was of stuff that went BEYOND that. Complete privacy breach.

  9. Xicha, agreed. It was also Peter, however, who pushed back on the notion that Awlaki was killed for knowing too much, by asking why he didn’t just spill it all, since the US announced its intention (and made several failed attempts) to kill him many months before it finally succeeded.

    Mr. Farrell just kind of stammered at that one, since there’s really no good answer. It remains a good question. Like I say, we have a lot of intriguing but highly fragmentary facts about Al Awlaki. Pretty hard to do much sound speculating from what little we know…but that doesn’t stop some people from trying. I rule nothing out, but I need a little more to go on before I rule anything in.

  10. This was an outstanding episode, worth this month’s subscription on its own. Awlaki may have been the major CIA operator within Al Qaeda after Ali Mohamed’s arrest in 1998, he is one of the main links between the different teams within the 9/11 ‘hijackers’, just as Ali was the link between the Kahane assassination, the 1993 WTC bombing and the 1998 embassy bombings.

  11. I was just thinking about this interview and have come to the conclusion that Mr. Farrell honestly wasn’t able to conceive of the US government actually managing and directing al qaeda and Bin Laden, Al Zawahiri, Ali Mohamed, et al, in the time frame Sibel mentioned (2001). It’s true cognitive dissonance on display. Maybe. It sounds like it though.

    He doesn’t seem to understand just how bad it is. He mentioned that maybe the CIA did have some successful operations going on and it wasn’t all failures. Instead of thinking that the CIA didn’t want the exposure of the failures to blow the successful operations, he needs to understand that, for the top tier, the failures and successes are the same operations. They aren’t failures of imaginations or instances of being tricked by those super tricky assets. They are successful operations and cover-ups, which have real benefits for the top tier of government and the war and security-driven industries, as well as the geo-political ideologues.

    You know, for a minute, he sounded like maybe he was interested in following up on the allegations of judge bribery as well.

    NSA spying; compromised judges, representatives, and officials; false flag domestic terror; and whistle blowers threatened, jailed, and many times silenced. We really need the help of a brave person who already has stood up and had an affect on the careers of federal judges in the past.

    So, can we get a follow up interview? And just spend the majority of the time on Gladio Plan B? Pinpoint this artifact of propaganda that is telling his brain that the bad guys were left to their own agenda and then blow-back ensued. And, with all due respect and humility, Peter B needs to hear this again as well. Let’s build on what appears to me to be a good start with this interview.

    Thanks for considering this.

  12. I wanted to include judge blackmailing, al-Awlaki, and the energy industries in the respective lists I used.

  13. CuChulainn says:

    Judicial Watch, a legal group that regularly files lawsuits on behalf of conservative causes, claimed that the areas around Ciudad Juarez have become hotbeds of Middle Eastern militants bent on invading America. Last month, the group said it had proof that there was a training camp in Anapra, a community on the western end of Juarez.

  14. Sam Bissonnette says:

    What was al Awlaki up to? Perhaps the greatest Cointelpro/MK Ultra Op ever! As a revert, I’ve been to a few forums. To any English as a 2nd language, or even American reverts, al Awlaki is THE PRE-EMINENT ENGLISH SPEAKING SCHOLAR! Only dawah speakers get as much of an audience. His lectures are downloaded more than anyone! (‘cept that Turkish feller, maybe.)

    And, bizarrely, I had a wife from another country. When I told her that al Awlaki made the “hit” list, she asked to be “released” so she could could go be a human shield for him! Oh, and 3 months later, went to Yemen. Not sure why I was surprised when the JTTF showed up!

    In al Awlaki’s 1st set of the Seerah, he even claims a particular verse in the Qur’an approves suicide bombing! I stopped listening to him after that. His “Afterlife” series is known by all! It is the vast, vast majority. Now, remember, the Muslims don’t know he was in cahoots with anyone!

    This needs to be explored and shown to Muslims, just so they know they’ve been had! The Americans are the most brainwashed people on the planet, EXCEPT the Muslims. And, gee, guess who’s pitted against each other!

    We haven’t seen the last of the effects of this.
